The news, announced by Intel via Twitter, means that the timeline for users looking to make more GPUs available through the cloud is even more vague than before.with gratitude Bionic_Squash.
Project Endgame efforts are pending. No updates to share at this time.July 19, 2023
Project Endgame was supposed to be available in beta by the end of 2022, but that time has passed and Intel’s dreams of high-speed computing seemingly gone. Unfortunately, Intel’s tweet didn’t provide an update on how and why Project Endgame is apparently being kept.
Project Endgame was announced by Intel in 2022. At the time, Raja Koduri was still Intel’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Graphics Group (Raja himself, a similar position at AMD that he was poached by Intel). At the time, Raja demonstrated the service’s potential by testing out a low-power laptop running Epic Games’ impressive ‘Matrix Awakens’ demo.
However, due to the performance demands of that particular demo, the frame rate was low and choppy on my low-powered local computer. This situation was quickly rectified by enabling Endgame and its “Continuous Computing” option, allowing Raja’s laptop to leverage his networked ARC GPU to speed up the workload. became.
Intel hasn’t confirmed a scenario where Endgame will be a viable way to access higher performance, but the company has extended it from general computing to edge computing and IoT, and low power. It is believed that they wanted to be able to handle graphics even with remote installations of . Compute workloads (including games, generative AI, video encoding, etc.) as long as your network has the required bandwidth.
Endgame can be a really invisible performance boost option. Unlike services like his GeForce Now, which spawn a cloud-based instance of his OS where all the processing happens there, Endgame allows users to bring the performance of her ARC to their own installation. can. The project’s inexplicable delay is disappointing, but given its potential, it’s likely that Intel will eventually push the project forward, whether it remains endgame or not.
